Your tires need to be deflated to take advantage of increased traction while 4wheeling off road.  This lengthy process often involves removing the tire valve stem caps and depressing the valve.  Often times people use vehicle keys, knives, small sticks or other similar tools to depress the tire valve.  This is a painfully slow process and involves extended time kneeling on the ground or bending over waiting for the tire pressure to drop.

Tire Deflation Hard Method

As the tire pressure decreases you will need to periodically stop and check the tire pressure with a tire pressure gauge; then resume as needed.  The major shortfalls of this method are:  1. Slow & Tedious.  2. Painful on back and/or knees.  3. Difficult to make all tires equal pressure.

A less painful method is to remove the valve from the valve stem; you will need a small screw driver or valve stem remover.  This process requires careful attention to tire pressure as the air will escape rapidly; be quick to check tire pressure and replace valve.  There are several shortfalls with this method:  1. You can only air down 1 or 2 tires at a time.  2. Danger of losing tire valves.  3. Difficulty to stop tire deflating at an exact pressure.
